Following a trip to Japan for two packed-out Tokyo shows at the start of 2020, Swimming Tapes suddenly found themselves, like most bands, unable to write and perform together. This stifling of creative output and collaboration drove Lou Price to start putting songs together himself; something he had done in partnership with his band-mates and best-friends for many years.

The result of this isolation is “Parkside Grooming” – a collection of indie-pop songs which see Price wear his heart on his sleeve, allowing himself to push past barriers and become far more personal with his song writing. Across the EP, he touches on the breakdown of his parents’ marriage when he was a child “Caroline”, anger and confusion about the government response to the pandemic “Figure It Out” / “Hit Me Up” and the financial stresses and strains of living in London as a musician “Hang Tight”.
